Butterfly sighting

Jun 23 2017

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Buena Vista Grassland
Portage County

3:40 hrs. We walked 3 miles in the grassland one 1/2 mile each along the road. After we found a Gray Copper and Regal Fritillary we concentrated on areas where we might find Bronze Coppers. 13 Bronze Coppers were along both sides of Farmer's Road in the first 0.5 mile south of Swamp Road. This roadside, especially down in the ditch east of the road when it is not under water, is better than average for Purplish Coppers during their flight.
